Congrats to the winners of the 2011 RAMMY's. Last night nearly 1,500 foodies from across the District gathered at the Marriott for a festive affair. Notable chefs, mixologists, sommeliers, owners and restaurant staff were ushered to the awards ceremony with the masses to catch the scoop on who would win the award for the best of the best in D.C.
